Design Matters: Helping Disaster Victims

via Rob Dobi (with special thanks to Flyer Design Goodness)

I've been looking around for a way to best help the people of Japan and elsewhere in the aftermath of earthquakes, tsunamis, and difficult conditions with low supplies. I found a couple of organizations who have helped disaster victims in meaningful and creative ways:

ShelterBox - well-designed, efficient disaster relief specifically tailored to each situation.

Architecture for Humanity - assists in long-term rebuilding efforts.

My thoughts are with those around the world who are in crisis; I wanted to share these resources. Please feel free to share your favorite relief organizations in the comments section below.
